Design Aids—CapSense Data Viewing Tool
Viewing and monitoring data are common tasks during the development of various kinds of PSoC device-based applications. For instance, in order to select the proper parameters for the CapSense CSA, CSD, or CSR User Modules, such as finger and noise thresholds, it is convenient to observe raw data from the sensors including baseline and signals with and without a finger touch. The most commonly used approach is to collect text data via an RS232 interface using a HyperTerminal application, import the text data into a spreadsheet application (such as Microsoft Excel) and finally, plot a chart. This approach is intricate, inconvenient, and does not allow real-time data monitoring. The PC application allows you to view data from up to 48 sensors, save and print charts, and save data for later analysis in a spreadsheet.
